It is mostly used in the sense of a functional, intensive course or program that allows the acquisition of targeted knowledge, skills or exchange in a short time in any subject. These distinguishing features of Bootcamp, which enable the goal to be achieved in a short time, are that it is lean in terms of objectives and intensive in terms of process.

The origin of the word boot is actually based on an interesting story. Recruits in the American navy during the Spanish-American war of 1898 were dressed in leggings, showing that they were novices. For this reason, these soldiers were called boots. In the process, the camps where these recruits were trained were also called “boot camps”. In addition, this type of training for recruits was also used in programs in which civilian and military prisoners were “rehabilitated” at the same time. The two different words, combined with their usage in the 19th century, have reached their present meaning.

Today, the word Bootcamp appears in more than one area:

Bootcamp appears as a special name in its uses in the first four articles, in the sense of the type we gave at the beginning of the article, and in its use in the last two articles. It stands out that although it is used in different areas as a type of training, it retains the meaning of “focused, intensive training” in the field in which they are used.

What is Bootcamp (Recruit Training) as Military Training?

The first use of Bootcamp in the modern sense is an intensive training program that takes an average of seven weeks, in which civilians to be recruited into the American military quickly turn into military personnel. Civilian individuals participating in these trainings;

To give an example of the skills contained in these titles;

Although it acquired new views in the different areas where it was used, it retained the meaning of “focused, hands-on, intensive training” in all its uses. This is why Bootcamp is focused, practice-based intensive training.

Fitness Bootcamp

Fitness Bootcamp has acquired its structure, inspired by the Bootcamp method practiced in the American military, as in the corrective trainings we mentioned above. This Bootcampler is a process of various physical exercises that increase body endurance, strength. The type of exercise (yoga, pilates, barfixes, push-ups, squats, etc.) varies according to the focused change, the goal (aerobics, strengthening, etc.), but differs from the usual sports programs by its intensity. The different aspect of Fitness Bootcamps than standard fitness programs is that participants develop their fitness skills and show their maximum potential more than they would push themselves in terms of strength. However, it is also important to develop the ability to work as a community for a common purpose.

Especially since the late 90s, it has been organized outdoors and outdoors. After the 2000s, it began to be popular as an outdoor work. Fitness Bootcamps have been seen independently in Australia, America, Canada and the UK.

What is Coding Boot Camp and what are its features?

Bootcamp, which means focused, hands-on, intensive training, is an intensive teaching model that has begun to be implemented frequently in the recent period, especially in the information sector.

But why has the word Bootcamp started to be used before the IT industry, why has it become known as the IT industry today?

Despite all its popularity and popularity, the IT world does not have human resources in proportion to its needs. Therefore, in the context of the IT sector, Bootcamps serve as a teaching model that allows rapid specialization, which is developed by the IT world, whose needs and trends change very quickly, for its needs. Companies can organize Bootcamps to equip their employees with the new skills demanded by the industry and create the technical human resources needed. Bootcamps can also be applied to people at the beginning of their career, as well as people who want to evolve their current career towards a different career.

Software Bootcamps were conducted as intensive software development work prior to this form of human resources and teaching model. In this form, it was first organized by Hungry in 2011.

Up to 2017, 95 full-time Bootcamps were held in the United States, lasting from 8 weeks to 36 weeks. Universities have also started organizing software development programs through various partnerships. Over time, software Bootcamps began to be funded by payments in the form of loans from employers or participating students. The U.S. Department of Education announced in 2016 that it was spending $17 million on non-traditional teaching programs, including software Bootcamps.

According to a study published in 2017, there is a fee range of up to $21,000 in Bootcamp fees. In the same study, information about $11,874 is shared as an average of Bootcamp fees. In Europe, both paid and free are found in the same way.

As a result, the word Bootcamp is the name of a teaching model applied especially by information companies regarding the solution of this growing problem. In this aspect, Bootcamps is also an application-based, focused and fast human resource creation model.

In this way, individuals gain proven skills in the relevant technology/skill area and gain a career opportunity through an intensive learning process. Companies, on the other hand, provide the technical staff they need from people who are already in the industry, not from scratch. The feature that distinguishes Bootcamp from other teaching methods in the field of software is that the task for which the targeted knowledge and skills will be used at the end of the process is mostly ready.

For all these reasons, Bootcamps is a teaching and human resources model that is more than functional for institutions and those who want to improve themselves in any subject.

If you are curious about bootcamp in software and do not know how to start, this is our blog you can examine it.

DevBootCamp

devbootcamp is the name of a company that organizes software Bootcamps of the type that we discussed in the previous section. Founded in 2012 by Shereef Bishay, Jesse Farmer and Dave Hoover, this company runs 19-week software Bootcamps. At the end of Bootcamps, conducted by the California-based company, participants are placed to work. Devbootcamp, which was acquired by Kaplan Inc. in 2014, closed in 2017.

Bootcamps organized by devbootcamp consist of several stages. After the first week of career training, 18 weeks of technical training begins. In these trainings, there is also a general feature of Bootcamps: the people admitted to Bootcamp consist of people who do not have previous experience and knowledge in the Bootcamp field to which they apply, or who have little experience. For example, the background of applicants to Bootcamp, which was held in 2013, is diverse, ranging from baristry to master's degree graduates. As in other Bootcamps carried out in the IT sector, it is aimed to make applicants ready to start work at the end of Bootcamp.

Path.dev Bootcamp

Path.dev is the name of another company that organizes software Bootcamps of the type that we discussed in the previous section. In March 2021 Gulcan Yayla, Emre Sharbak and Mustafa Can Qiranli founded by Path.devset out to solve the problem of software shortage in Turkey. Currently, it is positioned as the leading software training community in our country with its free e-learning platform, where more than 140,000 programmers and software candidates are registered.

Another thing that differentiates Patika.dev from other educational platforms is that they have a platform called “Cohort” of their own. The article on the Cohort platform from here you can read.

Apple (macOS) Boot Camp Assistant

Another area where the word bootcamp comes up is an Apple software (Apple Boot Camp Assistant). This software, released by Apple in 2006, is a software that allows the installation of the Windows operating system on Intel - Macintosh (MacOS) computers. Thanks to this software, users can install and run Windows-based drivers on their Macintosh computers. So you can set it externally if you use an Apple computer and want to use two operating systems.

Apple is updating this software according to the released Intel-based versions of Windows. But at the moment this software does not work directly on computers and other devices with Apple's own developed chip (M1). Through software such as Parallels Desktop, Windows can be run on Apple Mac devices with M1 chips.

There is also information that when this action is applied, it is outside the scope of the “Apple support” that Apple provides to its users. For these, it is first recommended that users do research and, accordingly, install and use the Windows operating system on their devices.

Using Bootcamp as Correctional Training

This training model, in which civilian individuals quickly turn into military personnel, has also begun to be used by some countries (America, Canada, New Zealand and Australia) in the process of correcting persons who have been implicated in crimes. These trainings, which include intense physical activity, are mostly young people who do not have a criminal record, who are not involved in violent crimes. People who complete these trainings, which usually last between 90-180 days, are eligible to participate in social life under the supervision of a supervisor. People who do not participate in these trainings or who are removed are admitted to other correctional training that lasts longer.

The main argument of those who advocate the use of bootcamp type training in the correctional process of persons infected with crime is that training with this method removes people who are infected with crime from destructive environments that provoke violence. In addition, some studies conducted in America show that Bootcamps, which include various psychological counseling and trainings, have positive effects on participants. In contrast, Bootcamps based solely on intense physical activity were observed to have negative effects on participants in the same studies.
